Movie Scores that are Magical
The score world is underrated and sometimes, I feel, underappreciated. I've listened to scores for many years, but this year is when I really delved into listening to scores and appreciating their sound.
5 Covers That Would Have Sounded Amazing
Have you ever wondered what a certain song would sound like if someone else covered it? When an artist remakes another artist’s song, it’s either a hit or a miss. There’s a plethora of best covers/worst covers lists all over the internet. Despite so many articles on covers, I was never able to find a list of covers that listeners WANTED to happen, so I wrote one myself in 2020. Since then, I thought of five more covers I think would have sounded amazing, but alas do not exist.
Modern Love, 21 Love Songs for 21st Century.
Don’t tell anyone but I was watching one of those viral TikTok silhouette challenges, when it occurred to me: this is the 21st century. And only in the 21st century would a previously classic song be set to a sick beat with the new lyrics saying - in part- “drop your location” and, of course, the 21st-century icing in the cake, is that this remixed version of “Put your head on my shoulder” from the 1950s comes with its viral hashtag. A new generation will discover Paul Anka’s classic hit all over again. Does that make the original a 21st-century song? In any case, that got me thinking...someone is always going to be singing about and interpreting love. Here are 21 songs about love 2021 from the 21s century!
Kate Bush Albums Ranked
Why Kate Bush is One of My Favourite Singers? I think she is one of the best singers ever because of her immense talent and artistry. Even though the music industry remains male-dominated, I think it’s wonderful that a woman like Kate Bush can still inspire many generations many years after Wuthering Heights was released. Wuthering Heights was the first UK number one single to be written by a woman, and she was very young at the time as well. I love how theatrical, experimental and progressive her music is. Her influence an timeless records can still be heard on many records today.

The Best of NF
With the release of Let You Down, NF became “mainstream.” People labeled themselves a fan after they heard the song on the radio and scoured the internet for his music. Some people listen to his music on the account of popularity, others admire his catchy beats and reminiscence of Eminem, but his dedicated fans, that avidly listened to his music on repeat and waited for every new album released, felt a sense of bitter sweetness as their beloved and tormented NF hit it big. He deserved the recognition, but do they really understand and appreciate his music? Many pre-mainstream followers felt the new fans did not. NF’s fan base connects to his music on a deep level to an extent not seen elsewhere, which has gained him a lot of loyal and protective fans. His music addresses hard topics such as hardships, depression, and love. He acknowledges that life isn’t sunshine and rainbows. Life is hard, and it especially has been for him and his fans that connect with his words.

Workout & Leisure Playlists
Music For A Boosted Mood Social distancing and mask wearing have made social life challenging. Through these masks it is difficult to breathe and to hear others as well. 2021 may just as well be a repeat of 2020, or at least half of it until the vaccinations numbers are up to the government's satisfaction. Life as we know it has changed dramatically. Aside from binging on Netflix and Hulu, painting, drawing, making jewelry and music, listening to music is something that enhances my mood significantly in these challenging times. I listen to music almost the entire day, upon waking up, when I'm bathing or showering, when I am falling sleep, and even on my way to the store. I have always had some chunky headphones or earbuds since mp3 players and the Walkman were trending. Music just gives me life!
